Secret Garden Clock

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I am so excited as today I get to spend more time crafting in my new craft room.

All housework and washing has been done and hubby has been told not to interrupt me creating.

Today I have altered a Tim Holtz alarm clock, I hope you like.

I wanted to create a garden scene so I painted an MDF square with Adirondak Dabber Lettuce and when over with Distress Paint Peeled Paint.

I painted the outside of the clock with Adirondak Dabber Lettuce

On the inside I used Distress Paint Weathered Wood

I attached the paper to the inside of the lid to the clock and decorated inside with metal leaf, flowers and a butterfly.
On the outside I cut out the fence with Kraft card, added the Prima bicycle and the clock face onto the wheel, I then added the flower pot.

Up one side of the clock I added pearl strand, flowers, leave and butterfly.
Finished adding flowers to the flower post and added flowers to the back of the fence too.

From this angle you can see the bird cage, dragonfly and the little birds I cut out from the paper on the handle.

To finish off I added Stickles to the flowers which hasn't shown up very well.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
